Broward County has no public housing available, and the Section 8 housing voucher program is also at capacity. Broward’s housing authorities have about 1,566 occupied apartments and about 9,700 Section 8 recipients, and that only meets about 10 percent of the community’s affordable housing needs. Housing prices in the county have fallen, but rents have not, and people with low incomes are unable to get loans for home purchases in the tight credit market.
